About Lily & Arthur's

Named after our Grandparents, and inspired by our childhood - Lily & Arthur’s is a small family business established in April 2014. A brother and sister collaboration, we are believers in providing the whole experience from the environment customers sit in to the food they eat and the service they receive. Our menu is simple but homemade - sandwiches, salads & soups and where possible we source local fresh produce. All our cakes and pastries are baked by us on site using the finest quality ingredients – our award-winning chocolate brownies being an all-time customer favourite.
Based just outside Wigan Town Centre, we have a small 52 seat dining room which also serves freshly ground coffee and loose leaf tea in pots to compliment the simple menu.

I booked a table a week in advance for myself, 3 friends and our babies. I booked the table online & stated in the comment section we would be bringing our newborns in prams. On arriving we was told there was no room for us and was told by a very rude woman behind the counter that we were awkward. I was more than happy to go elsewhere at this point but gave the benefit of the doubt as id heard many good things about the place. One lady kindly found places for our prams and we sat down for lunch. One of the members of our party has a baby of weaning age and asked the lady at the counter (the one who was initially rude) if she could purchase 2 slices of toast for her baby. The woman in question looked at my friend like she’d just spat on her face! “We don’t do toast at lunch time” was the response we received. We then explained it was for a baby and she then had to go and ask the manager if it was ok to toast a slice of bread. Absolutely ridiculous! As new mums it’s quite daunting leaving the house especially to go to public places and there was just no need to be so rude! Other than that, the food was lovely and other members of staff were very nice. However that experience has put me off from going again.

I've become a regular at Lily & Arthur's, this is through a recommendation from a work colleague. We don't call weekly, but regularly enough in the month and it's an opportunity to get out of the office and enjoy some good food. We enjoy the atmosphere as it's always busy which is another sign of a good business. The staff are always friendly and the service is spot on. We particularly like the combo options from the menu and this is a firm favourite when we call in. All in all, I would recommend Lily & Arthur's to anyone and everyone. Looking forward to our next visit.

Haven't been to Lily & Arthur's for a while but we were pleased to find it as good as it has always been. Online booking meant that we could reserve a table in advance. Service and food were excellent. Will definitely be back again soon.

One of my favourite places to head to whether during or after a training ride or meeting up with friends. Great coffee, amazing food. It is a real treat of an experience. Friendly, welcoming staff and a great ambience.

It was really quite disappointing that not only did we have to wait for our table when we got there, we also then had to wait a further 25 minutes for our coffee to arrive - 35 minutes for our afternoon tea to arrive. Given that I had changed my appointments around for that day - as 2:30 was the latest time slot you are able to book afternoon tea for and the food not arrive until 3:10 - quite annoying! Overall, service - a complete let down, food and drink was lovely as usual but I just feel that my whole previous experience of Lily and Arthur’s has now been squashed by our most recent trip, especially when we were taking our 95 year old grandmother out for a little treat!

First visit to Lily & Arthur’s for breakfast. Food was great and coffee really nice. Love that you cater for the wee ones too with your babyccinos. The fruit toast went down a treat aswell. Will definitely be returning in future.

We enjoyed our visit on Saturday. Everyone’s food was tasty and we were stuffed after the generous wraps. The Victoria sandwich cake ran out before we had chance to get a piece, but we happily picked something else! Thank you 😊
